    Be Safe and Sober this St. Patrick’s Day

       St. Patrick’s Day Impaired Driving Prevention Campaign

    If you are celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, remember to do so responsibly by having a plan to get home safely.  This St. Patrick’s Day (March 17), the Oxnard Police Department will hold a DUI Checkpoint from 5:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. at an undisclosed location within the city limits.  In addition, specially trained officers will be on patrol looking for drivers suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

    On St. Patrick’s Day 2019 in California, seven people were killed, and 116 others were injured in crashes caused by driving under the influence.  Not only does driving under the influence put yourself and others on the road at risk, but it also hurts financially; attorneys’ fees, fines, court costs, insurance rate hikes, and car repairs can reach $15,000 or more in California.

    California’s public health guidance advises to limit mixing with people you don’t live with as much as possible to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. Although many St. Patrick’s Day celebrations will be held virtually this year, it’s important to designate a sober driver or stay at home for the night.

    If you ever see a suspected drunk driver on the road, call 911.

    Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
